Saturday Bible studies at the Bennial

Bible studies will not only be offered in English but will include Burmese, Spanish and French.

These are nor the same Bible study with interpreters but distinct studies for the identified people groups.

Hauro, maybe you could arrange to do one in Esperanto at the 2021 Biennial.

We have our Motorhome parked at The North landing Beach Campgrounds approximately 22 Miles south of the Virginia Beach Convention Center. Today there are several committee meetings but no public meetings until the opening worship service this evening. We will go into town around five to have dinner at one of dozens of eating places on the strip which is three or four blocks east of the Center. From there the beach and ocean are entirely hidden by Hotels. It is a seafood lovers paradise. Looks like we are back in Florida. Tomorrow we have to be there EARLY for the Central Seminary Breakfast.

Ed: We now have 10 Biennials under our belt. A lot of walking with meeting om two floors of a tremendously long building and the elevators not There is an escalator about a third of the way from main entrance but I do not do escalators if I can avoid them.


The Worship Services where as well done as any I have experienced in one of these Convention Center settings, As is to often the case some of the Music was painfully LOUD. However this evening with the Host Region (ABC of the South) presenting the music was inspiring.

Hauro will be glad to know that the Evergreen region was well represented. NYS was also well represented as where Metro NY and Rochester Regions.

In the morning we will pull out and head to a park West and a bit South of DC for a week and then we will move Northest of DC for the 4th of July weekend. Sometime while there I have to check in at the VA hospital for my quarterky blood draw. The VA has great vampires, so I realy do not dread it..

How were the Saturday Bible Studies? Some of the younger Evergreen attendees were very unhappy with the hermeneutical approach in one of them.

Ed: Sorry Hauro, I did not attend the Saturday Bible Studies. I am sort of burned out on opinions re; Jonah. I am guessing your young friends thought it was too literal, based on a few comments that I overheard.
